In Chapter 2, you studied many types of linear functions
In Chapter 2, you studied many types of linear functions. One special type of linear function is called direct variation. A direct variation is a relationship between two variables x and y that can be written in the form y = kx, where k ≠ 0. In this relationship, k is the constant of variation. For the equation y = kx, y varies directly as x.

A direct variation equation is a linear equation in the form y = mx + b, where b = 0 and the constant of variation k is the slope. Because b = 0, the graph of a direct variation always passes through the origin.

Example 1: Writing and Graphing Direct Variation
Given: y varies directly as x, and y = 27 when x = 6. Write and graph the direct variation function. y = kx y varies directly as x. 27 = k(6) Substitute 27 for y and 6 for x. k = 4.5 Solve for the constant of variation k. y = 4.5x Write the variation function by using the value of k.

Example 1 Continued Graph the direct variation function. The y-intercept is 0, and the slope is 4.5. Check Substitute the original values of x and y into the equation. y = 4.5x (6)

If k is positive in a direct variation, the value of y increases as the value of x increases.

Check It Out! Example 1 Given: y varies directly as x, and y = 6.5 when x = 13. Write and graph the direct variation function. y = kx y varies directly as x. 6.5 = k(13) Substitute 6.5 for y and 13 for x. k = 0.5 Solve for the constant of variation k. y = 0.5x Write the variation function by using the value of k.

Check It Out! Example 1 Continued
Graph the direct variation function. The y-intercept is 0, and the slope is 0.5. Check Substitute the original values of x and y into the equation. y = 0.5x (13)

When you want to find specific values in a direct variation problem, you can solve for k and then use substitution or you can use the proportion derived below.

Example 2: Solving Direct Variation Problems
The cost of an item in euros e varies directly as the cost of the item in dollars d, and e = 3.85 euros when d = \$5.00. Find d when e = euros. Method 1 Find k. e = kd 3.85 = k(5.00) Substitute. 0.77 = k Solve for k. Write the variation function. e = 0.77d Use 0.77 for k. 10.00 = 0.77d Substitute for e. 12.99 ≈ d Solve for d.

Example 2 Continued Method 2 Use a proportion. e1 = d1 d2 e2 3.85 = 5.00 d 10.00 Substitute. 3.85d = 50.00 Find the cross products. 12.99 ≈ d Solve for d.

Check It Out! Example 2 The perimeter P of a regular dodecagon varies directly as the side length s, and P = 18 in. when s = 1.5 in. Find s when P = 75 in. Method 1 Find k. P = ks 18 = k(1.5) Substitute. 12 = k Solve for k. Write the variation function. P = 12s Use 12 for k. 75 = 12s Substitute 75 for P. 6.25 ≈ s Solve for s.

Method 2 Use a proportion. P1 = s1 s2 P2 18 = 1.5 s 75 Substitute. 18s = 112.5 Find the cross products. 6.25 = s Solve for s.

A joint variation is a relationship among three variables that can be written in the form y = kxz, where k is the constant of variation. For the equation y = kxz, y varies jointly as x and z. The phrases “y varies directly as x” and “y is directly proportional to x” have the same meaning. Reading Math

Example 3: Solving Joint Variation Problems
The volume V of a cone varies jointly as the area of the base B and the height h, and V = 12 ft3 when B = 9 ft3 and h = 4 ft. Find b when V = 24 ft3 and h = 9 ft. Step 1 Find k. Step 2 Use the variation function. V = kBh 1 3 12 = k(9)(4) Substitute. V = Bh Use for k. 1 3 1 3 = k Solve for k. 1 3 24 = B(9) Substitute. 8 = B Solve for B. The base is 8 ft2.

Check It Out! Example 3 The lateral surface area L of a cone varies jointly as the area of the base radius r and the slant height l, and L = 63 m2 when r = 3.5 m and l = 18 m. Find r to the nearest tenth when L = 8 m2 and l = 5 m. Step 1 Find k. Step 2 Use the variation function. L = krl 63 = k(3.5)(18) Substitute. L = rl Use  for k.  = k Solve for k. 8 = r(5) Substitute. 1.6 = r Solve for r.

A third type of variation describes a situation in which one quantity increases and the other decreases. For example, the table shows that the time needed to drive 600 miles decreases as speed increases. This type of variation is an inverse variation. An inverse variation is a relationship between two variables x and y that can be written in the form y = , where k ≠ 0. For the equation y = , y varies inversely as x. k x

Example 4: Writing and Graphing Inverse Variation
Given: y varies inversely as x, and y = 4 when x = 5. Write and graph the inverse variation function. k x y = y varies inversely as x. k 5 Substitute 4 for y and 5 for x. 4 = k = 20 Solve for k. 20 x Write the variation formula. y =

To graph, make a table of values for both positive and negative values of x. Plot the points, and connect them with two smooth curves. Because division by 0 is undefined, the function is undefined when x = 0. x y –2 –10 –4 –5 –6 –8 x y 2 10 4 5 6 8 10 3 10 3 5 2 5 2

When you want to find specific values in an inverse variation problem, you can solve for k and then use substitution or you can use the equation derived below.

Example 5: Sports Application
The time t needed to complete a certain race varies inversely as the runner’s average speed s. If a runner with an average speed of 8.82 mi/h completes the race in 2.97 h, what is the average speed of a runner who completes the race in 3.5 h? k s t = Method 1 Find k. k 8.82 2.97 = Substitute. k = Solve for k. s t = Use for k. s Substitute 3.5 for t. 3.5 = Solve for s. s ≈ 7.48

Example 5 Continued Method Use t1s1 = t2s2. t1s1 = t2s2 (2.97)(8.82) = 3.5s Substitute. = 3.5s Simplify. 7.48 ≈ s Solve for s. So the average speed of a runner who completes the race in 3.5 h is approximately 7.48 mi/h.

Check It Out! Example 5 The time t that it takes for a group of volunteers to construct a house varies inversely as the number of volunteers v. If 20 volunteers can build a house in 62.5 working hours, how many working hours would it take 15 volunteers to build a house? Method 1 Find k. k 20 62.5 = Substitute. k v t = k = 1250 Solve for k. 1250 v t = Use 1250 for k. 1250 15 Substitute 15 for v. t = 1 3 t ≈ 83 Solve for t.

Check It Out! Example 5 Continued
Method 2 Use t1v1 = t2v2. t1v1 = t2v2 (62.5)(20) = 15t Substitute. 1250 = 15t Simplify. 1 3 83 ≈ t Solve for t. So the number of working hours it would take 15 volunteers to build a house is approximately hours. 1 3 83

You can use algebra to rewrite variation functions in terms of k.
Notice that in direct variation, the ratio of the two quantities is constant. In inverse variation, the product of the two quantities is constant.

Example 6: Identifying Direct and Inverse Variation
Determine whether each data set represents a direct variation, an inverse variation, or neither. A. In each case xy = 52. The product is constant, so this represents an inverse variation. x 6.5 13 104 y 8 4 0.5 B. y x x 5 8 12 y 30 48 72 In each case = 6. The ratio is constant, so this represents a direct variation.

Determine whether each data set represents a direct variation, an inverse variation, or neither. 6a. x 3.75 15 5 y 12 3 9 In each case xy = 45. The ratio is constant, so this represents an inverse variation. 6b. x 1 40 26 y 0.2 8 5.2 In each case = 0.2. The ratio is constant, so this represents a direct variation. y x

A combined variation is a relationship that contains both direct and inverse variation. Quantities that vary directly appear in the numerator, and quantities that vary inversely appear in the denominator.

Example 7: Chemistry Application
The change in temperature of an aluminum wire varies inversely as its mass m and directly as the amount of heat energy E transferred. The temperature of an aluminum wire with a mass of 0.1 kg rises 5°C when 450 joules (J) of heat energy are transferred to it. How much heat energy must be transferred to an aluminum wire with a mass of 0.2 kg raise its temperature 20°C?

Step 2 Use the variation function.
